Many industries choose to have a concrete floor coating installed in their premises, but have you ever wondered why this decision is such a popular one? From hospitals to warehouses and sporting facilities, concrete floors are a common sight. Here’s why:

Long lasting

Concrete floors can stand not only the test of time but can also bear the brunt of heavy items and equipment. You don’t need to worry about the pressure of cars, crates or forklifts, as concrete is more than a match for them and won’t crack or wear down easily. This means the heels of shoes and furniture definitely won’t be making a dent, so a concrete coating is ideal for places with both lighter and heavier duty requirements.

Simple upkeep

Concrete floor requires minimal effort to maintain and needs to have a wax treatment applied to it at three to nine-month intervals. This will ensure it’s protected and strong, but it can be cleaned normally with a mop as needed. For dirtier areas, it’s fine to give the floor a good scrub without worrying about damage.

Versatile

If the concrete is applied by a professional, it will be perfectly smooth and won’t have any bumps or holes. This means it will be easy to install virtually any other floor surface over the top should you want to in the future. No matter what you decide to use your premises for later, a concrete floor coating won’t limit you.

Design possibilities

Although concrete has a reputation for being a dull grey colour, it really needn’t be boring when used as a floor coating. The concrete mix can be coloured to suit your preferences or, alternatively, the surface can be stained using acid once the concrete has been installed. Special dyes can also be used to create different designs as well as paint that’s coated with latex to keep it waterproof.
